Bansley and Wilkerson win bronze at Tokyo 2020 test event

The goal of Tokyo 2020 is much more real for Heather Bansley and Brandie Wilkerson after winning bronze at the Tokyo 2020 test event on Sunday.

Bansley and Wilkerson defeated German duo Julia Sude and Karla Borger for third place. They won the game in two straight sets (19-21, 11-21).

This is the pair’s fourth medal on this year’s World Tour. They won gold at the Las Vegas and Chetumal Opens in October last year. Earlier in May, they won bronze at the Itapema Open.

The FIVB World Tour spans from August 2018 to September 2019.

Also competing were world champions Sarah Pavan and Melissa Humana-Parades, who finished in fifth place.
